Microdermabrasion

Women and men concerned about having a dull, rough, or uneven complexion can benefit from microdermabrasion treatments performed by providers at The Derm Group. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin by loosening dead cells with a fine spray of tiny crystals.

How Is Microdermabrasion Performed?

Microdermabrasion is a slightly more aggressive treatment than a mild or moderate chemical peel because it physically abrades the outer layers of the skin’s surface. The procedure begins with a thorough cleansing that removes dirt, oil, and makeup. Next, your provider presses a hand-held device against the skin. It delivers the spray of very small crystals that polish away the outermost layer of dull, damaged skin with an abrasive substance, improving skin coloring and texture while stimulating collagen growth.

What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion is typically used on the face, neck, and chest, but is also effective on other areas that are often exposed, including the hands and legs. It softens the appearance of:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Superficial scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles and fine lines

Combining microdermabrasion with a chemical peel can enhance the effectiveness of both procedures.

What to Expect

Most people are very comfortable during the procedure and compare the experience to a mild facial massage. Microdermabrasion treatments generally last about 30 minutes and typically cause redness in the treatment area for about an hour after treatment.

What Does Microdermabrasion Cost?

The cost of microdermabrasion treatments vary depending on the specific procedure and the extent of the treatment.

Post-Treatment Skin Care

Our physicians recommend avoiding exposure to direct sunlight following a microdermabrasion treatment. Using a full-spectrum sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection is always a good idea but is especially necessary following any skin resurfacing procedure to protect the sensitive new skin. Your aesthetician may prescribe skincare products to help your skin renew itself quickly.

Other Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

Besides chemical peels, other skin resurfacing procedures such as intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments or laser skin resurfacing may be appropriate. The Derm Group also offers a variety of professional skincare products to keep your skin looking healthy before, during, and after treatment.


The Derm Group uses an advanced skin analysis system to determine your skin’s unique needs before developing a customized treatment plan. If you have additional questions or would like to speak with one of our board-certified dermatologists, call (973) 571-2121.
